Popular Appetizers Recipes

Appetizers are like tiny jewel boxes of flavor, small bites meant to stimulate the palate -- not fill your stomach. That's what makes looking for appetizer recipes so much fun - since you don't have to fill the plate, you can concentrate on putting together ingredients in ways that sing. And they don't have to be fancy to pack a punch - spicy wings, deviled eggs, easy bruschetta, or even a nicely presented dip can be a winner. The classic combination of melon and prosciutto is a perfect example: Just two ingredients that play off of each other perfectly, the salty richness of the ham contrasting with the tropical sweetness of the melon. Perfection. When you're planning for a holiday party, you want quick and easy appetizers that play nicely with what you're serving as a main course. You want to compliment the dish without repeating ingredients - serving marinated mozzarella before plating up a cheese-heavy lasagna is definitely overload. Try to keep things light, and remember - you're going for flavor, not quantity.
